The various pantheons of the city are ready to welcome the thousands of people gathering on November 1 and 2 on the occasion of the Day of the Dead to visit their dearly departed, as confirmed by the Mayor, Arturo Davalos Peña, who toured the different cemetaries yesterday to find them clean, fully rehabilitated and to have the necessary security measures.

In the company of trustees and directors of different areas, the Mayor checked the conditions of public cemeteries and found that the ten locations are well maintained and ready to receive approximately 150,000 Vallartenses.

It was also found that they are ready with security operations and logistics that will give order and accommodate the vendors around these areas, including preventive actions and recommendations for visitors so that this tradition culminates with good feelings.

The Department of Licensing has issued 127 permits for the sale of food, flowers and wreaths in cemeteries.

The spaces are defined to give order to these activities and there will be tours by the staff of Regulations and Licensing; also Civil Protection will be verifying the conditions of the spaces with selling food to prevent and eliminate any risk to the population.

Similarly, the Division of Civil and Fire Protection and the Directorate of Public Security and Traffic Police have implemented a security operation and issued the following recommendations in regards to the different cemeteries:

Respect traffic signals to avoid accidents and parking areas that will be identified in all cemetaries; remain constantly hydrated during your visit and come with umbrellas, caps and protective elements for the sun; Acoholic beverages or firearms not permitted and special care for minors is recommended.

If the support of Municipal Police and Civil Protection is required, there will be the presence of elements in each of the spaces, as well as ambulances and security filters to take care of all attendees.
